Dear Sarah, Suzanne, Pat, Diana, Melissa, Christina, Margaret 

There were no volunteer opportunities for me in December, but I did not want to leave for Florida without saying goodbye and wishing you all happy holidays. 

I want you all to know that you are truly a blessing to the residents of Dominican Village. Your generosity, compassion, patience, and genuine affection show in everything you do. I am continually amazed at the quantity and quality of the events and activities that you undertake. And, I am happy to play a small role in some of them. 

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. My wish for you is that you receive abundant reward in your lives for the gifts you have been so generously sharing with others. I will be in touch when I return on March 1. And, if you still need volunteers, I will be back !



Arline ,

Dear Ms. Sherri,
I would like to thank you for all the amazing opportunities I’ve enjoyed in my near three years here at Dominican Village.
As a senior in high school, I remember struggling to find a job that would work with my schedule until I landed here. I will never regret deciding to submit an application due to the many experiences I’ve had. I have had the pleasure of working with many coworkers who have now become my close friends and mentors that I can always go to for advice. It is certain that I will never forget the Dominican Village family and their unique warm-hearted personalities. I appreciate you for giving me a platform to succeed that allowed me to balance my education with work and my personal life. I admire you for your diligence and pride that you put in your tasks everyday as it takes a strong leader to manage the unexpected bumps in the road. No matter what the circumstances like the snowstorms, the few staff shortages, or last-minute notices you always pulled through and showed that every ship needs a strong captain. I’m truly grateful to have worked under your leadership and couldn’t have asked for a better person to work for.
Thank you again for taking a chance on the baby-faced teenager that walked in your office a few years ago. Now as I leave a young man ready to take on my future, I will never forget this place and the many things it has taught me.


When I first arrived at Dominican Village, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It didn’t take long for me to find out. The front desk are the best people you will ever meet and if you need help, they are there for you.
Need more help or someone who will always be honest is Carole and Sister Catherine in the office. They’re terrific. (and believe me, with me, you must be special or very patient.)
There are lots of activities. Suzann, Melissa, Pat and Diana are there for you to have a great time. All you need is an open mind and just enjoy. Suzann always helps you. She is a delight and knows how to talk with us senior citizens.
All in all, most everyone is fun. The food isn’t bad either. I love sitting and walking in what I call my backyard.
There’s a lot to say about Dominican Village. It really is up to you. You can enjoy or you can sit down and feel sorry for yourself. I prefer to “Enjoy”


I attend and enjoy Theology, Bingo, Sittercise and Special Events.
I enjoy the Library, Media Room and Special Movies.
